Blue Jays vs Tigers predictions

As the Toronto Blue Jays take on the Detroit Tigers, I'm expecting a big game from Vladimir Guerrero Jr. He's been on a tear lately, and I think he'll continue his hot streak with at least two hits and an RBI. Bo Bichette is another player who's been producing well, and I see him getting on base at least twice and scoring a run. George Springer has been quiet lately, but I think he's due for a big game, and I predict he'll hit a home run and drive in two runs.

On the Detroit Tigers side, I think Riley Greene is going to have a big game. He's been seeing the ball well lately, and I predict he'll get two hits and score a run. Kerry Carpenter has been driving in runs left and right, and I think he'll continue that trend with at least one RBI. Javier Baez has been struggling, but I think he'll break out of his slump with a hit and a run scored.

Overall, I think the Toronto Blue Jays have the edge in this game. Alek Manoah has been pitching well lately, and I think he'll shut down the Tigers' offense. With the Blue Jays' potent offense and Manoah on the mound, I predict a 5-2 win for Toronto. The Tigers will put up a fight, but in the end, the Blue Jays' superior talent will shine through.
